Hello my lovelies,
I feel like I write these posts far to often, I mean where is the time going!? This is for me simply the best time of the year. As soon as November 1st hits, the Christmas countdown well and truly begins for me. November all in all has been a good month for me, as you are reading this I am currently in Berlin enjoying all the Christmas markets and stuffing my face with amazing food! I started a new job in November, and I officially have been blogging for a whole year now – incredible! I have actually written a little thank you post, so if you haven’t seen it already go check it out here
Onto my beauty favourites, none of these are necessarily new products. I have been trying to not buy a lot this month in the spirit of Christmas and all I really need to be buying for others!
NYX – Cosmic Metals Shadow Palette see here
I was kindly gifted this by my best friend earlier on the year for my birthday and I instantly fell in love. I don’t know how I have missed putting this in favourites. I have used this palette almost every day this month! The colours are just beautiful and so easy to wear, they are crazy pigmented as well which is not what I was expecting when I first tried them out. I use these just on their own because the pigmentation is incredible enough however it’s mainly because I have been super busy this month so a swipe of one of these colours is great & I’m good to go! I can see myself using this for a long time to come!
MakeUp Obsession Highlighter Palette
This palette was actually made up for me online but the link for the website is here where you can create your own palettes – yes I know it’s amazing! Onto the products, I picked this up earlier this year and I had been wanting to try Make Up Obsession for the longest time. I loved the idea of creating your own palette. For whatever reason I chose to pick up a pre-created palette mainly because there was so much choice! I love every single one of these highlighters and I can see myself buying a lot more of these.
Autumn/Winter calls for highlight, I love highlight all year round but even more so in the colder months and this has been the perfect palette to play around with and create the perfect highlight on my skin. I would say my two favourites out of this are H103 Bronze and H109 Pop which are the two middle shades. Seriously if you haven’t tried this brand before go check them out. They are also stocked in Boots too!
LA Girl – Pro Conceal in Light Ivory see here
Ok, so I love this concealer. I go through phases of wearing this every single day to completely forgetting about it’s existence. This has been by far my most used and loved concealer of this month. Although I haven’t had a bad month with my skin, the dark circles are really real and this has been the perfect product to cover those bad boys up. I love how much product you get for your money – it just keeps on giving. I love that LA Girl is now so readily available within the UK because it is an amazing brand and more people need to see how wonderful it truly is.
Bourjois – Bronzing Powder in 52 see here
So hands down for me, this is the best drugstore bronzer on the market. Literally I LOVE it and this month it has been the only bronzer I have worn all month. I just flipping love it. I still don’t know how I haven’t hit pan yet because I use it all the time. For me, it is the perfect bronzing shade regardless of what time of year it is, it just always shines and creates the perfect bronzed look where I need it. I have actually mentioned this in my Top 3 bronzers post so if you want even more reasons to buy this then go ahead and give it a read!
Too Faced – Melted Matte in Queen B see here
I don’t think I have mentioned this on my blog before and I have no idea why. This product is AMAZING. The colour is stunning and nothing like I have ever worn before. A beautiful mauve colour which compliments my complexion beautifully. The formula is amazing, but what do you expect from a brand like Too Faced. I have worn this so much this month and I don’t think I will be loosing touch with it any time soon. It is my perfect Autumn/Winter lip shade. I never thought I would like a shade like this but you never know until you try!
Loreal – Hydra Genius see here
So I have been giving this a go this month, I didn’t really know what to expect. It is such a different product on the market especially when it comes to the drugstore. The formula is amazing and feels wonderful on the skin. I really think my skin has improved this month and I think it is down to this little baby. It is seriously a beautiful product and I think that you need to just try it out especially if you are on the fence. I will be writing a full review on this product so keep your eyes peeled!
Lush – Snow Fairy Shower Gel see here
Last but no means least one of my favourite products EVER. Do I even need to explain why I love this product? This time of the year is all about Snow Fairy, I mean what else would you use!? I am down to my final bottle of this so I need to get buying more of this. If you have never smelt or used this before, like seriously where have you been!? You need to go and smell this for yourselves. I promise you, you won’t regret it. This baby was the start of my Christmas countdown.
Let me know if you have tried any of these products and what your thoughts are of them. I’d love to know! PS where are all the Snow Fairy lovers!?
